WAITING ROOM + PROJECT SPACE
On view: May 2 - June 7, 2019
NEW YORK – 57W57Arts is pleased to bring together four artists whose work oscillates between the readily familiar and the stirringly surreal. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, May 2nd and the exhibitions will be on view to the public through June 7th.
Under the curation of Andy George Robertson, the gallery’s Waiting Room and Project Space features paintings by Ed Robertson, Andy’s father and frequent collaborator. On view are recent paintings alongside smaller canvases set in handmade, wood frames, some of which date back to the 1970’s. Ed Robertson’s vibrant landscapes take on a visual and conceptual twist as he paints into these pastoral scenes the temporary outdoor sculptures of his son Andy. One of Andy’s freestanding, mixed media-based sculptures is exhibited in the Project Space.
